Breaded Fish Fingers with Sweet Potato Oven-Fries

Doreen Fish


Even kids who hate fish will devour these fish fingers!!

Having grown up eating fish 3 or 4 times a week my mom needed to be creative feeding 8 kids!! This is not one of my mom's recipes but she'd love it!!
I remember as a kid my mom giving me a quarter and telling me to go get fish for supper as the fishing boats were in....we'd all run and buy the biggest cod fish we could carry and we'd take it home while it was still squirming!!
My mom would cut that fish up quicker than anything and we'd have fresh fish for supper!!
You'd never get a fish like that these days that's for sure!!
